    Related note: is there any stores still selling this film?

    I have 2 boxes, wouldn't mind getting even one more.

    Kal,

    You love that film and use it very well. You know as well that 55 is a very capricious one :-)
    You should play with these possible flaws and it can be beautiful. I love it.
    But you need to have a back up for your client... :-( who might not understand the beauty of these flaws... :-) !!!

    G.

    PS: I store 665 with expiration from 2001 and up to 08. Very interesting stuff...
    Old opened 55 box in the house, in the californian heat... no problem.

    Your bet (and vibes)

    Polaroid films are incredibly variable in their life span, even when kept under "ideal" conditions. I have a half-box of 55 which seems fine more than 5 years after exiration, while I've also had some which was defective before the exp date. Like the Irish say: "hope for the best and expect the worst."
